Veteran artist Durga Prasad Das is the president of Lalit Kala Academy’s Bhubaneshwar centre. His richly coloured paintings focus thematically on common, everyday subjects. They depict, for instance, festivals and saris, squirrels and bulls, lending grandeur to simple things. Using Hindu mythology as an inspiration he has also painted the goddess Durga many times. His art emphasises the colour and richness of India. Shown widely across the country, his work is on permanent display at the Birla Academy of Art and Culture, Bengaluru. A student of Shantiniketan, his students too have made a mark in the art circles.
